When I saw this library ladder I immediately put it on my mental bucket list and then crossed it off. Climbing one of these would have been on it already if I had only thought of it. One woman even walked by and said, “It’s Belle!” Precisely. Now I have lived! If only I had a house with a library like this… and a lovely fainting couch to lounge on… and a smoking jacket, which is really just a rich man’s slanket.
